Please, please, please do not continue posting the same old posts, asking the same old questions, spreading the same old FUD, and wasting mine and everyone else's time and bandwidth. Practically all peoples voting points must go on your posts just to drop them out of view from an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable web site.

If you don't like mono, or have a problem with it, don't use it, don't get involved with it, and don't comment on it. Just move on, and stop spoiling the ride for the rest of us.

I personally feel mono on the new nokia device is great. As I've always said - with mono comes RAD capabilities over and above pygtk. With mono comes a complete stack that takes the ownership of all the cumbersome tasks away from the developer so they can just focus on creating great apps.

Being able to run a remote beagle query against your pc(s) storing all your music, bookmarks etc would be brilliant ;)
